Technology Prediction: 8 software trends you can count-on in the year “2019”

“Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation”

– Dean Kamen

Let’s talk about the fastest rising trends in the software industry-

  1. Multiplatform UI Development

Google’s Flutter SDK is in the market. It’s a mobile UI framework that helps developers build fast, cross-platform mobile applications.

Wait! Are you thinking, “Google already has a mobile SDK! i.e. Android.” You are right, but as always, Google isn’t hitting app development with a single solution. It now has two of them: Android and Flutter.

Companies need front-end for the web, iOS, and Android. Doing each of these in different ways is inefficient. There are many solutions that work for Android and iOS, but few solve the complexities of mobile app development solution to the developer’s taste. The demand of the day is Multi-platform UI Development Software with more people gearing up to launch more of such solutions in the market.

  1. Blockchain Technology

The blockchain is a peer-to-peer connection of systems which is used to store information. Data is private and secure. This system provides authentication of bigger transactions, hence there would be no need for costly mediators.

As revealed in the ‘2018 Global Blockchain Survey by Deloitte, 74% of businesses envision practical use cases around Blockchain with more than 40% believe they will adopt Blockchain in the future. Chaos theory tells us it is impossible to predict the future and the Apocalyptians believe it shall fall anyways. While it is still a challenge for the world governments to accept bitcoins as a legit currency officially, the current trends suggest Bitcoins are here to stay, and with more companies exploring the business behind them, 2019 should be a blockbuster year for Blockchain Technology

  1. AI-based software development

Coined back in 1956, ‘Artificial Intelligence’ made little breakthroughs and largely remained one of the most underestimated technology for years. The debates on humanity vs AI with movies such as AI by Steven Spielberg back in 2001 or debates with Elon Musk are not helping the cause much.

The magnanimous investment and growth in the AI industry currently are not because of the interest or the controversies this technology generates, but because businesses have started to see ROI in the stream.

In 2017 China’s artificial intelligence startup companies took 48% of all dollars going to AI startups globally. Chinese T-shirt manufacturer Tianyuan Garments Company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Arkansas government to employ 400 robot-workers at $14/hr at its new garment factory in Arkansas. In Japan, by 2025, around 80% of elderly care would be done by robots, not nurses.

US, Canada and other countries in Europe have also started investing hugely in the AI industry besides China. Companies such as Flatiron Health even from the Healthcare Industry have over USD 303m funded for AI research and development.

Artificial Intelligence is indeed growing faster than you thought and by 2019, the global AI market is expected to grow to approximately 11.28 billion U.S. dollars compared to 7.35 billion US dollars in 2018.

  1. Cybersecurity

According to a research firm CB-Insights, U.S. companies like CrowdStrike, Cybereason, and Darktrace raised $651.92 million funding (CrowdStrike-281mn, Cybereason-188.62mn, Darktrace-182.3 ) for cybersecurity domain in the year 2018.

Every month we see a new headline of cyber-attack on well-known companies. According to the news agencies, recently about 50 million Facebook accounts got compromised by hackers. Security threats not only destroy data but also impact company image negatively. Small or large no business wants their data to be hacked, so Cybersecurity will play an important role in the 2019 technology development. People concerned about cybersecurity will open a new door for the software development world.  Companies are investing not only thousands but millions for stronger cyber-security. Clearly, 2019 will be boon for Cybersecurity technology development.

  1. Software to create Software

Software development has come a long way from its beginning. Now it is possible to create an app or website with almost no coding knowledge, you just need the right software. This software are decreasing the distance between non-coders and software development. Still, there are many miles to go. Next year will add some more growth to it.

  1. Human behaviour Modelling

Researchers at the University of Geneva have created a mathematical model of human mental behaviour that can predict and analyze normal and pathological human behaviour.

According to Daniel Bennequin, professor of the mathematics department at the University of Paris – “Perception, imagination, and action are supported by unconscious mechanisms, we discovered that consciousness integrates them through a specific geometry: projective geometry.”

Creating computerised models of human liking and disliking can be a major deal of 2019. Programming human behaviour and taking marketing decisions according to the choices they make can be a game changer. Finding the possible trends by user behaviour modeling can define next moves of the user too, So Human behaviour Calculation is definitely a field to work into.

  1. Serverless Microservices

A survey states that 70 percent of large enterprises have migrated a significant part of workload to the public cloud. In this group, 39 percent are using serverless, 40 percent are using containers and 34 percent are using container orchestration. Software companies are accepting Serverless Microservices for isolation and categorize software development. The dividing code in small parts makes development easy as small teams can operate on specific parts without affecting the whole code. The definition of Serverless microservices goes much beyond that. Large companies have already started adapting this. In the year 2019, this technology is going to be most popular among mid-size businesses too.

Final words – In technology universe “change is the only constant”. The helpful technologies will be made better and the not-so-helpful software will be replaced. Businesses need to adopt new things and grow continuously. Developers with adaptive nature and right skillset have several opportunities to learn in the upcoming year. 2019 will be huge for technology development.  We are willing to see above-listed changes and many more.
